Haunted Village Surprise

by Kathleen Ballos

Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? Make this miniature haunted village as decor but also a surprise way to hide candy! Arrange the paper houses on a window sill, tray, or tabletop and when someone wins a game let them pick a house to reveal their prize. P.S. Another fun way to include a haunted house at your party!
